Although primarily aimed at servicing its core business in the oil and gas sectors, Port Services intends to aggressively market the capabilities of the new crane on a UK-wide scale to a broad range of other industries, including renewable energy, petrochemicals, rail, road and general construction.
Steve Clark, Port Services managing director, said: “This crane offers huge potential for us to diversify and effectively serve the heavy lifting requirements of a number of different industry sectors. We believe there will be large demand for a crane of this capacity, which can be deployed at short notice anywhere throughout the UK.”
The TC2800-1 is the largest crane in the range built by German manufacturer Demag, one of the world’s leading suppliers of industrial cranes. It offers enhanced operational flexibility that will ensure considerable time and cost savings during heavy lifting operations. A major advantage is its large outrigger base, which provides excellent lifting capacities and maximum boom length.
